Is it obligatory for a person who studies religious sciences
to begin with the books of a specific school of jurisprudence?
A person should learn the religious sciences which he needs to learn, as we mentioned previously in the answer of question (3). One does not have to begin with books of Fiqh or the rules of Fiqh of a specific school of jurisprudence. In fact, the person should choose that which is easy and appropriate for him. He should also refer to religious scholars for counsel to help him understand the Qur'an and Sunnah. (Part No. 12; Page No. 83) May Allah grant us success. May peace and blessings b upon our Prophet Muhammad, his family, and Companions!
